My client has no wish to litigate and she made a very reasonable and sensible proposal. Unfortunately that proposal was rejected and my client had no option but to pursue this in litigation. She is not a gold digger. Far from it. She is simply seeking a fair and proper

Margrethe Vestager - European Union

This is an illegal practice under EU state aid rules. Member states may not grant selective tax concessions to multinational groups to which other companies do not have

David Davis

I still know him as the 'hero of Dublin', when as prime minister of little Luxembourg in 1996 he calmed a row between the giants Kohl and Chirac over the Stability and Growth Pact [economic and monetary union policy]….Jean-Claude rammed Germany and France's heads together and made the arrival of the euro possible. In many areas, such as citizen rights and Northern Ireland, progress has indeed been made. Is it enough? That is a recommendation Michel will make to government leaders. He is keeping his cards close to his

Turkey's neighbors are not Luxembourg or Belgium but the Islamic State and Al Qaeda, so it is risky to promote jihad because of the region Turkey is in and the rising jihadist recruitment trend

Luc Holtz

I wouldn't reproach the game that France played. They had rhythm and pace to their play. The only thing they didn't do was take their chances. When a team plays deep, like we did, there's often a leg or a head in the way of shots. They sought to find spaces but there weren't any. It's difficult to get chances when it's like

Didier Deschamps

It is football. It makes sense. To have so many chances and not to score one, it's infuriating. We lacked a bit of accuracy. A number of little things were not sharp. This was a historic game for Luxembourg. For us, it is a day of

Hugo Lloris

After the Netherlands win, we had the first place with a three-point lead, here we lost two. The only thing that keeps us positive is that we are in a better situation than we were, but it is true that this is a big disappointment

Hugo Lloris

We had to do more, to be more of a killer in the box, to be a little more thoughtful in the last choices and the last passes, everything happened in the last

Antoine Griezmann

Two matches in three days, it was difficult especially for me it was because I was suspended during my last club match. We had 11 warriors in front of us, and for me, it was beautiful to see because it reminds me a bit of my club, but we will continue to

Lots of films are multi-territory European co-productions, like The Happy Prince for example. It is being made with UK, Luxembourg and German money. We currently don't even know what it means for movies like that once Brexit occurs. What is the opportunity to keep those productions through EU funding? What does it mean for funding those movies? Could there be levies, or issues getting German funding into a British movie, for example? There are risks associated with

Theresa May

Leaving the European Union will mean that our laws will be made in Westminster, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast. And those laws will be interpreted by judges not in Luxembourg but in courts across this country. Because we will not have truly left the European Union if we are not in control of our own

Gilles Muller

Luxembourg is very famous for their banks and their tax rules and everything, so they felt like they had a bad image. So they're trying to redo everything and reorganize everything, and they asked me if I wanted to help. Now, I'm playing free and not thinking about that first title anymore. That's helped me a lot. All the attention I got, I took it the wrong way. In my head, I'd made it. I took it for granted, and I think that was not a good

Bobby Friedman

The government must offer some clarity on the judiciary’s relationship to the ECJ – because the Brexit bill itself is ambiguous, and will lead to uncertainty all round. What happens when a judge gets demob-happy? The answer can be seen in the intervention by the imminently departing president of the supreme court, Lord Neuberger, in the debate over the role of the European court of justice – better known as the ECJ – once Britain leaves the EU. The government will doubtless be less than delighted at another dissenting voice in the Brexit

Schona Jolly

David Davis has confirmed that the EU charter of fundamental rights won’t become domestic law. This must be challenged and debated immediately• Schona Jolly is an international human rights lawyer. There was a time, not so long ago, that David Davis was a great fan of the EU charter of fundamental rights. He liked it so much that he used it to take up a legal challenge against the snooper’s charter (brainchild of the-then home secretary Theresa May), which ended up in

Gilles Muller

The first time I played him here I beat him, Second time I lost in three sets, but I had a set point in the first set and was up a mini-break in the second set (tiebreak). It's true I beat Rafa in 2005 but he's improved a little bit on grass since then! He's won the title

I think the team had more than enough to maybe to score more goals. We know that we are winning one-nil, this is just the half time, nothing is done, and we need to go to Luxembourg next Tuesday with the will and the desire on our mind that we need to do everything and win the game. That is all that

Paolo Amodio - Progres

I think all the pressure is on Rangers to make sure they go through. They probably expected to win tonight by five or six goals and it's not the case, so anything could happen next

Luc Frieden

We need a strong partnership with the United Kingdom, it's our neighbor and it's going to remain an important financial services center. Yet at the same time, out' is not 'in' and therefore I think the United Kingdom must know that it's not going to benefit anymore over the passporting rights it used to have. So with those two pillars, I think in between a deal can be found but it will be very difficult and it will take a lot of

Luc Frieden

I think the United Kingdom can in no way get this passport in the future. Look at the Swiss. The Swiss have always asked for this and they've never got it. In these negotiations we always have to keep in mind that we have a partner and a friend that is Switzerland. So these negotiations – Brexit – and the ongoing negotiations with Switzerland have to be kept in mind and have to develop in

Fabio Di Masi

He was the architect and the godfather of this cartel, you can see for example from when he took office, the so called tax rulings, which were big topic under the so-called Luxembourg leaks, exploded. So there is clearly a relationship and he met personally, and he basically advertised himself in election campaigns in Luxembourg by saying I was the one who attracted business here with our favourable tax

Jean-Claude Juncker - European Commission

Jolyon Maugham

With regret, we have agreed between us and with Ireland that the litigation should be discontinued. It is clear that Ireland does not want a reference to the court of justice in Luxembourg of the questions in the proceedings. If, as is likely, Ireland takes every point available to it, it is unlikely we would have a full hearing in the [Dublin] high court until the autumn … So we might not have a decision on the questions referred much in advance of the date (October 2018) by which both David Davis and Michel Barnier have said negotiations would need to be

That’s what European Union executive branch leader Jean-Claude Juncker said he’d do, if Trump continues to urges other European countries to echo Brexit. Because we all know how swayed Americans will be by EU politicians telling them whether or not to secede. Or is this that famous absurdist Luxembourg humor?feedback

David Davis

We have been clear that we want a smooth and orderly exit, and the Great Repeal Bill is integral to that approach. It will provide clarity and certainty for businesses, workers and consumers across the United Kingdom on the day we leave the EU. But it will also ensure that we deliver on our promise to end the supremacy of EU law in the UK as we exit. Our laws will then be made in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and interpreted not by judges in Luxembourg but by judges across the United

David Davis

It will provide clarity and certainty for businesses, workers and consumers across the United Kingdom on the day we leave the EU. It will mean that as we exit the EU and seek a new deep and special partnership with the European Union, we will be doing so from the position where we have the same standards and rules. But it will also ensure that we deliver on our promise to end the supremacy of EU law in the UK as we exit. Our laws will then be made in London, Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast and interpreted not by judges in Luxembourg but by judges across the United

We played with great flair and energy in bursts, and we also played good football. But you must also be critical: we give goals away too easily.

Mr. Trump will learn very fast that the EU is not a bunch of 27 grocery shops, where you knock at the door and start doing business. Instead, it is something grand, if we stick together and continue to act

Xavier Bettel

On the contrary, the 60-year anniversary is the moment when we look at what works well. It marks 60 years of having liberties, having rights, living in a space where I can go to work, I can go to live, I can get married, I can die, I can study, I can be cared for, I can be defended, I can be elected. It is something we must remember. With the digital agenda, for example, we have 28 regulators, we have 28 markets, we are blocked between the United States and Asia, we are caught in a vice. We need to understand we need a common

Xavier Bettel

It is not because a country says 'I do not want to' that we won't advance. We should be able to move forward issue by issue. It will not be a Europe with those who want and those who don't want. I would have preferred 28 ... (but) I respect that decision and regret it. I would prefer a two-speed Europe to a stalled

It will be project by project, it is for me a multi-speed Europe where we move forward rather than remain at a

I will not let myself be blocked today because one decides. If one does not want to move forward, it is not the European Union, we are not hostage to one or the other, we continue together. My project is to remain at 27, I would have preferred 28, I respect that decision and regret it. But I want to continue as 27, that's my main purpose, but I don't want us to do nothing.

My home country, Luxembourg, was occupied by the Nazis. Our people were suffering. My father was forced into the German army together with his three brothers.

Remittances from emigrants can make a significant contribution towards national income. Latvia, Croatia, Hungary and Lithuania are the most reliant on remittances in the EU, all with over 3 percent of GDP coming from abroad.

No, the risk of contagion should be quite limited. The case of Cyprus was really unique in several aspects.
